According to ancient knowledge from India, the source of our energy as women is Shakti. Shakti is the feminine principle of divine energy that creates and makes manifest everything in our world. She is a dynamic energy, ever changing, flowing creating and re-creating.
The feminine life force energy, Shakti, sits within us in our lower belly at our sexual center. As we begin to awaken to this energy within our bodies, we awaken to our essence, or the natural flow of feminine energy. The natural flow of our energy is flexible!
The first secret in awakening to love for our bodies, sensuality and beautiful femininity is awakening to our inherent nature to adapt, constantly change, dance and invite in flexibility into our lives.
When we say flexibility, it is flexibility of our body, mind, emotions and even the roles we play in life. All of these are related; the more flexible our bodies are the more likely we will be flexible in our minds and emotions. We are likely to better maintain healthy relationships and intimate partnerships. We are able to receive with ease and hold less tension and stress.
One of the most important ways, we as women, can begin to cultivate our flexibility is through dance and yoga, which are softer forms of engaging the physical body. Often times the modern gym workout is geared more towards building muscle and strength. However, what is important to remember is that even as we engage in activities to become more physically flexible, it is important we keep flexible within our self with our attitude and internal state. For example, if you begin to put pressure and stress on yourself and feel a tightening to get to that yoga class, it is creating an internal tension that blocks a natural flow of flexibility. So the key is to just breath, release into the need to DO in that moment and come within.
We can observe children and how flexible they are, in their bodies, in their attitudes, in their desires. They have a deep ability to “go with the flow”. Far too often we grow thinking that things have to go a certain way that we have to be a certain way and do things in a certain way and expect the same of others.
As women, when we begin to “hold on” to how things should be or go, we immediately block ourselves off from the natural flow of feminine energy WITHIN our own bodies, which is more free and fluid. This can begin to impact our relationships with a partner as we can become uptight or tight-lipped, we can hold resentment and anger when things do not go our way and lose a general softness and receptivity that is not only our natural state, but also feels so much better.
One of the simplest ways we can begin to awaken to our fluid and flexible nature is to get out of our heads and into our breath and our hips! Yes, ladies, into our hips. It is one of the most powerful places for us to reside in and live from. Our wombs are literally the flower of our life, our golden nectar, the source of powerful wisdom and knowing.
Whenever, we feel a tightness developing within ourselves we can just take a simply deep breath starting from our lower belly and exhaling out. The more we keep grounding into our wombs the more we will naturally awaken to and attune to its natural flow, which is the flexible feminine!
